Zimbabwe's Fight to the Finish: The Catalyst of the Free Market

Front Cover
Kegan Paul, 2003 - History - 345 pages
Moore examines the causes of the Zimbabwean crisis, including poor governance, inherited and highly unequal colonial structures, and the impoverishing impact of the IMF- and World Bank-sponsored Structural Adjustment Program, which, in bringing economic liberalization, exposed the failure of a skewed market to meet majority basic needs. Moore argues that Western states should help Zimbabwe resolve the question of land redistribution in order to secure a democratic and prosperous future.
